Founded in 1979, we’ve grown from a small non-profit organization into one of the largest study abroad membership networks in the world. As a trusted educational community, we are committed to helping students overcome the financial and academic barriers to study abroad. In partnership with our member institutions, we’re able to connect students to high-quality, academic programs at more than 300 universities in over 50 countries.
We directly enroll our students into classes at our member institutions because we value the full immersion that can only come from living and learning alongside locals. Our direct enrollment model broadens academic understanding as students engage in a curriculum presented through perspectives different from their home country.
ISEP Exchange allows you to swap spots with a student from another ISEP Exchange institution. By studying abroad on ISEP Exchange, you pay your tuition and fees to your home institution and open up a spot for someone to come learn at your university. Choose up to 10 universities and we’ll place you at the best option depending on exchange space and your academic needs.
Our ISEP Direct programs guarantee that you get to study at the university of your choice while offering you the ability to customize your study abroad experience to meet your needs. Unlike ISEP Exchange, ISEP Direct offers later deadlines and guarantees you placement at your top university for a program fee (as long as you meet the minimum academic requirements).
